OFF! is back with another track from their upcoming album, Wasted Years, called “Hypnotized.” It follows the release of the awesome and chaotic single, ”Void You Out,” which we premiered last month. “Hypnotized” is a little over two minutes of insanity that will get you hyped for their upcoming project.
We’ve been doing our podcast live for awhile now and it’s always been a little tough to wrap our heads around the best way to bring it to the stage.The casual nature of the chat podcast doesn’t always make for great theater.
Judging by how awesome our last two live shows went, I think we’ve finally cracked the code. It doesn’t hurt that we had some of the world’s funniest people as guests and terrific crowds at each. If you haven’t already, give a listen this week’s episode recorded at the SF Sketchfest and our episode from a few weeks ago recorded live on a battleship in the port of Los Angeles.
Note: As year-end honors finish filing in, I find myself with a lot of leftover thoughts on the films of last year. What follows is not a list of my “13 favorite” films of 2013. I stopped writing those sort of lists a while ago in a (completely futile) attempt to put away childish things. Instead, these are the 13 films from 2013 that I feel most compelled to write about. Their inclusion below doesn’t signify greatness so much as their ability to provoke some kind of fascination in me. (To explain- in early 2010, I spent more time writing about The Blind Side than any other film precisely because of its stupefying dullness.) With this caveat in mind, I present my thoughts on the cinema of 2013 with 13 movies which, for better or worse, I won’t shut up about:
Ryan Perez is not only a hilarious comedy writer, but also a terrific watcher/writer-about movies. I’ll second his enthusiasm for Stoker. It’s a really beautiful and thrilling movie that maybe got overlooked because it’s so eccentric.
The absolutely hysterical Karen Kilgariff has her album Live at the Bootleg coming out this month, specifically Feb. 25th, everyone and that should make up for Valentine’s Day going bad if it indeed goes bad.
Even if it doesn’t go bad, this is a comedy album that you need in your life and you can pre-order from iTunes or on vinyl now.
